I think my decision to stop buying yarn was very good for me, creatively speaking – it let me stop thinking about buying, and focus on creating. I think I may extend it to cover all fibers. I have plenty of yarns on hand, and it’s time for me to focus on doing something with what I’ve got, rather than collecting more things I won’t use. Ditto fiber.
Budget: I’ve created a budget, but because I was traveling during January and February, it’s been hard to evaluate how well I’ve kept to it. I’m going to keep tabs in March and see how I’m doing. But I have a budget, and that’s a start.
Priorities: I’ve decided to get rid of AIDS Lifecycle and the book, and concentrate on the Death Ride, weaving, and maybe some lace shawl design. This feels like a manageable amount of stuff, and I’m happy with the decisions I’ve made.
Mike: We’re getting along better than ever, and in fact we’re moving in together sometime in the next few weeks. We’ll keep my place and simply bring his stuff in. This will be neat, partly because it will save me a lot of money (so I can pay off debt faster), but mostly because I love Mike and look forward to living with him.
So all in all, I’m happy with my New Year’s resolutions after just two months. WE’ll see what happens over the rest of the year…
